Review summary

Enjoyed the cruise but timing of events clashed often, I know you can't please everyone and then found sometimes there was nothing we wanted to do. The biggest issue was trivia in the Schooner bar, much too small for the number of people who like to participate. Trivia made so enjoyable by Marvin, Joseph and Lisa.
